Lexington County Peach Festival

1 min read

Annually, the Gilbert Community Club hosts the Lexington County Peach Festival. It is recognized as one of the most successful and prestigious events of its kind in the southeastern United States. Summer after summer in the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, the community was alive with the harvesting, packing, and shipping of peaches. While we find only a few peach farms still in operation, the peach remains (in our minds) the Queen of all Fruits and worthy of honor in our small town. 

The Lexington County Peach Festival is held every year on July 4th (or July 3rd if the 4th is on a Sunday) in Gilbert, SC at the Gilbert Community Park. Festivities kick off every year with the parade at 9:30 am and stretch into the night until 9:30pm when we bring the day to a close with a dazzling display of fireworks. We hope you plan to spend July 4th with us as you enjoy live entertainment, the peachy and patriotic parade, over 100 Art & Craft Exhibits, antique car show, children’s rides, and many food items specializing in “Peachy” delights!
